UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Minutes of Special Meeting 

of the 

BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

July 29, 1987; 10:00 a.m. 

First Floor Lounge 

250 Stuart Street 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Trustees and Trustee Staff : Mr. Knowles, Chair; Trustees 

Bowman, Carlin, DiCara, Huang, Huguenin, Lopes, Oakes, 

Wingle and zervas; Mr. Miller, Deputy Secretary 

Absent Trustees : Trustee Matthews 

Administration ? President Knapp; Mr. Searson, General 

Counsel 

Candidates : James Dalen, M.D. , Leonard Laster, M.D. 

Mr. Knowles called the meeting to order at 10:10 a.m. 
He thanked the Trustees for their dedication in attending 
the meeting, noting that Trustee Huang had flown in from 
Washington in order to be present. 

He then said that the meeting would reconvene as the 
Search Committee and, in effect, reopen the search process, 
this to comply with an agreement with the Attorney 
General. After interviewing and discussing the candidates 
the committee would vote on a recommendation to the 
President after which the Board would reconvene and vote on 
the President's recommendation. 

At 10:15 the meeting of the Search Committee began. 
President Knapp then spoke on the search process. The 
search began in August, 1986 with the appointment of a 
committee consisting of three Trustees, seven 
representatives from the Medical Center, one from the 
Central Administration, two from the Hospital Management 
Board, one alumni and one student. 

The search was certainly the most thorough in the 
history of the University. Applicants were not restricted 
to those answering ads, an outside consultant was hired and 
numerous recommendations were received from friends of the 
Medical Center and others . 



After a careful and laborious screening the field of 
candidates was narrowed to six individuals four of whom 
withdrew their applications. 

Dr. Dalen was then asked to appear before the 
committee. In response to questions he spoke of his 
professional background, his conception of the role of the 
Chancellor, relations with the Community, future plans, his 
response to a recent move to split the University Hospital 
from the Medical School and other pertinent matters. 

Dr. Laster then appeared before the committee. He 
spoke to many of the same issues addressed by Dr. Dalen. 
Perforce, because of lack of familiarity, a few of his 
comments were of a general nature. 

At the conclusion of the interview, Mr. Knowles called 
for a ten minute break. The time was 11:40 a.m. 

At 11:50 a.m. the committee reconvened. In discussing 
the candidates there was general agreement that the 
Trustees were in the comfortable but difficult position of 
deciding between two candidates of exceptional merit. 

After discussion the Trustees were polled. Dr. Laster 
received nine votes, Dr. Dalen, one. 

The Trustees reconvened as the Board. The time was 
12:00 p.m. It was moved seconded and 

VOTED: To concur with the President in the appointment 
of Dr. Leonard Laster as Chancellor of the 
University of Massachusetts Medical center 
effective October 1, 1987, pending satisfactory 
completion of negotiations with the President 
concerning conditions of employment. 

The vote was unanimous . 

Trustee Carlin then asked that the members of the 
Search Committee be thanked for a superb job of long 
duration. He cited William Bowman, Thalia zervas , H. 
Maurice Goodman, Michael Czech, Carlton Akins, Trudy 
Morrison, Richard Fiddian-Green, Peter Levine, Kathleen 
Dirschel, Stephen Saudek, Keith Waterbrook, John Scott, 
James MacGuire and Lisa Levine. Trustee Oakes said that 
James Carlin should be added to the list. This was done.

Trustee Knowles, Chair, called the meetinq to order at

Without discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the Board meetinq 
of June 3, 1987. 

The chair, the President and the Chancellor then qave 
their reports. Mr. Knowles reminded the Trustees of the 
retreat to be held in late October. 

President Knapp noted recent leqislation concerninq 
the University, particularly budqetary matters. He also 
spoke of the just issued report University Resources for 
Government, Business and Industry . He then asked Dean 
Hanshaw to report for the Worcester Campus. 

Dean Hanshaw noted the arrival of two new depart- 
ment chairs - Dr. Charney, Department of Pediatrics and 
Dr. Stein, Department of Anatomy. Also, the Medical Center 
had added a new, more sophisticated helicopter to New 
Enqland Life Fliqht. He also spoke of the Medical 
Center's proqram for hiqh school students in health 
sciences and noted the upcominq first commencement for the

ject to convert a local medical/surqical hospital into a

Chancellor Duffey said that the Niqerian novelist 
Chinua Achebe, one of the most noted of African authors , 
would come to the campus next vear as Visitinq Professor 
of Enqlish. He noted that two of the twelve Marshall Fund 
Fellows chosen recently were from the Amherst Camous -- 
Rick Edwards, Chair of the Economics Department, and 
Richard Saltman, Associate Professor of Public Health. He 
concluded his remarks by notinq that staff of University 
Relations and Development had desiqned a number of 
brochures over the year, several of which had won awards. 
Also, the Annual Fund had qarnered just over $2,000,000, 
11% over the last fiscal year. 

Chancellor Corriqan noted that he would soon beqin his 
ninth year as chancellor and over the years his reports to 
the Board had dealt with the activities of students, 
faculty and staff. This report, he continued, would focus 
on chanqes and developments durinq his tenure. 

In May of 1979 when he assumed office UMass Boston was, 
essentially, an underqraduate institution with a qood 
faculty and little else to boast of. 

Over the years the institution had developed into a 
comprehensive university with a stronq qraduate component 
and an array of centers and institutes dealinq with a 
variety of subjects. The school's Affirmative Action 
Proqram had received national recoqnition. 

The public imaqe of the university was now one which 
inspired pride amonq faculty, staff and students. 

The Chancellor concluded his remarks by announcinq, 
with mixed emotions, his resiqnation as Chancellor as of 
Auqust 31, 1988, in order to return to teachinq and 
research . 

President Knapp expressed his own appreciation for 
Chancellor Corriqan's leadership of the campus. The 
President said that when he offered him the Chancellor- 
ship he warned him the post was both challenqinq and 
arduous. Over the years, on occasion, the Chancellor 
would chide the President for havinq understated the 
dimensions of the challenqe. However, Chancellor Corriqan 
always rose to the challenqe with dedication and seeminqly 
boundless enerqy. Chancellor Corriqan, the President con- 
tinued, had brouqht stability to the university and had 
transformed the Harbor Campus into a true urban university 
center. His record in recruitinq minority students and 
faculty is unexcelled in New Enqland and probably in the 
nation. Almost sinqle-handedly he had accomplished one of 
the few successful merqers in public hiqher education -- 
that of the University of Massachusetts at Boston and 
Boston State Colleqe. He had truly left a lastinq imprint 
on the institution.

Trustee Knowles, Chair, said that there were two 
items under the headinq Other Business. The first was 
Acting Chancellor -- UMass Medical Center . 

Without discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To appoint Dr. James B. Hanshaw as actinq 

chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
Medical Center. This appointment shall take

Dr. Leonhard Laster shall assume the duties 
of Chancellor . 

The second item was the Amherst campus Legal Services 
Of f i ce . Trustee Knowles, Chair, asked Trustee DiCara to 
report on his study of the office.. Trustee DiCara said he 
had visited the campus in June and had interviewed people 
on all sides of this issue. He noted that he had prepared 
the followinq motion (which motion was distributed to the 
Trustees) : 

To create a new leqal services center to provide the 
student in need with practical leqal advice and which 
would be specifically prohibited from any litiqation. 
Such a center would be accountable to the Vice Chancellor 



Paqe 12 

for Student Affairs, throuqh the Student Activities 
Director, to the same extent and in the same way as any 
other campus administrative unit. It should be funded by 
mandatory student activities fees. All employees would be 
University employees with the requisite benefits and 
obliqations. Job descriptions of the employees would 
mandate that they refer to outside counsel any matters 
requirinq litiqation. Furthermore, there would be a 
specific prohibition of particioat inq in "neqot iations" in 
lieu of litiqation with University officials. Not unlike 
district attorneys and assistant attorneys qeneral , these 
attorneys should not be permitted to enqaqe in anv outside 
work which could conflict with their duties as employees 
of the University or be in violation of Ch . 268A M.G.L.A. 
The sole role of this office will be to provide primary 
leqal services to individual students rather than enqaqe 
in any litiqation or other activities. 

In the course of his investiqation, Trustee DiCara 
said he had read a number of reports that had been issued 
over a number of years. He found a number of problems in 
the present structure. Which problems had been exacer- 
bated by personal animosities all around. 

The problems included the matter of the attorney/client 
relationship, the question of who is workinq for whom and 
the relationship to the University of the LSO. 

Another problem is the allocation of time in the 
office, at present too much time is devoted to litiqation, 
and not enouqh time to basic leqal services. Trustee 
DiCara said he had, in casual conversation with students, 
asked what leqal services they would expect from colleqe 
leqal services. Their expectations were thinqs such as 
automobile accidents, alcohol related issues, health, 
human riqhts, discrimination. All very basic issues. The 
proposed motion would establish a new leqal services 
center which would concentrate on such concerns. Such a 
center would provide the qreatest number of services to 
the broadest number of students. 

A number of other options had been considered, e.q., 
a leqal service operation which had no ties to the Uni- 
versity. 

Trustee DiCara then read his motion. Which motion was 
moved and seconded. Trustee Knowles, Chair, opened the 
discussion and called upon Chancellor Duffey. 

The Chancellor said he would concur with Trustee 
DiCara's recommendation. He noted that the Trustees had 
addressed the problem of protectinq University employees 
from possible litiqation in which other members of the 



Paqe 13 

staff may be litigants. 

Trustee Winqle said that this motion was presented 
durinq the summer, a time when few students were on 
campus. Also, the motion did not qo throuqh the normal 
Committee process. He asked that time be qiven to send 
it throuqh the normal process and be considered in 
September. In response to a question from the Chair, 
Trustee DiCara said he had no objection to this. 

Trustee Knowles, Chair, suqqested that the motion be 
read into the record, not vote on it, take it to the 
Executive Committee in September for action by the Board

The attorneys and staff in the center shall 
not enqaqe in, nor assist in enqaqinq in, any 
litiqation of any kind before any court or 
aqency, provided, however, that such attorneys 
may refer any matter requirinq litiqation to 
outside counsel. Such attorneys and staff 
shall not participate in negotiations with 
University officials or staff or enqaqe in 
any activities except those specifically 
authorized by this vote.

'

f 



submitted several amendments, one of which is a sizable increase 
in the funds dedicated to the Polymer Science Center at Amherst . 
He then described the concern about the continuinq space prob- 
lems on the Worcester campus which is approachinq a crisis 
s ituation. 

He announced several upcominq events: on November 20th, the 
University will present its Distinquished Public Service Awards 
and on October 30th, the University will mark its extensive 
involvement in International Affairs by qrantinq Honorary 
Deqrees to Takahiro Yokomichi, Governor of the Prefecture of 
Hokkaido in Japan; Erick Markel, head of the Max Kade Foundation 
in New York; and U.S. Senator Paul Simon. On November 6th, 
there will be a ceremony at the State House at which time the

their education. 

He concluded his report by proposinq a motion to initiate 
the search for a Chancellor for the Boston campus. He indicated 
that a small part of the difficulties which occurred durinq the 
Worcester search stemmed from a disparity between the procedures 
outlined in the Governance Document and those in the Trustee 
by-laws. It was moved, and seconded 

That the President proceed immediately 
with the search for a Chancellor of the 
Boston campus. To that end, the President 
shall appoint a committee broadly 
representative of the campus and with 
representation from the Trustees and the 
University to advise and assist him in the 
search. The President shall prepare the 
charqe for the Committee. The Advisory 
Committee shall report directly to the

Board of Trustees as provided in the 
Trustee Bv-laws Doc. T81-028C, Article 
I II, Section 5(q) .

his concern particularly that by passinq the motion the Board of 
Trustees would be abdicatinq its authority as outlined in the 
Governance Document to appoint the chancellor and offered a 
substitute motion. After a lenqthv discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : That the President proceed immediately 
with the search for a Chancellor of the 
Boston campus. To that end, the President 
shall appoint a committee broadly

President, who, in turn, shall appoint a 
Chancellor with the concurrence of the 
Board of Trustees as provided in the

III, Section 5(q) .

opposed to the motion. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Chair appoint a committee of the 
Board to work with the President and 
General Counsel to study the Governance 
Document and the By-Laws as they relate to

In the interest of time, Chancellor Duffey waived qivinq his 
report. 

Chancellor Corriqan announced with reqret the death of 
Kermit C. Morrissey, Commonwealth Professor and Senior Lecturer 
in the McCormack Institute of Public Affairs. He was President 
of Boston state Colleqe from 1971-1980 and played a variety of

3 



over a five year period. The campus also received a $2 million 
grant for the study of the prevention of heart disease. He too 
stressed the urgency for additional space at the campus. 

He called to the Board's attention that a determination of 
need had been submitted for a lung transplant program, the first 
in the country. He also reminded the Trustees of the upcoming 
Convocation to be held October 22nd. 

Trustee Oakes commented on the luncheon held prior to the 
Board meeting where Trustees had an opportunity to participate 
in a discussion with students. He added that he was impressed

Mr. Knowles, Chair, called the meeting to order at 2:10 
p.m. He noted the death of Trustee Matthews on November 30 and 
expressed the regret and sincere condolences of the Board to 
her family and son, Christopher. 

After a moment of silence the meeting was resumed. 

The Chair called for consideration of minutes of the 
previous Board meetings. Without discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the October 7, and 

October 27, 1987 meetings of the Board of Trustees. 

Mr. Knowles, Chair, reported on the last meeting of the 
Athletic Committee. Some four years ago the Committee had 
outlined a program to encourage excellence in all sports. The 
athletic program had achieved excellence in both women's and 
men's sports with the rather prominent exception of football 
and basketball . 

President Knapp, in the course of his remarks, expressed 
cautious optimism that there would be a capital outlay budget 



of some sort. Also there was a pay bill for non-unit employees 
in the legislative hopper. On the basis of just received 
information, he said, the Legislature had passed and the 
Governor had signed a bill naming the Administration Building 
at the Harbor Campus the Robert H. Quinn Building. There was a 
brief discussion of legislative involvement in the naming of 
buildings. 

There was discussion of yet another legislative bill. The 
bill would enlarge the Board by four trustees. Each would be 
an alumnus of the University -- two from Amherst, one each from 
Boston and Worcester. Trustee Oakes questioned the need for 
such an action. 

Also, there was a bill undergoing third reading which would 
provide funds for ten endowed chairs with the proviso that the 
University provide matching funds from private sources. (Later 
in the meeting the President announced that the House had 
passed the bill without amendments.) 

The President concluded his remarks by thanking Jan Napora 
and Marty Smith for their work in providing University 
leadership to the Telecommunication Project. He commended the 
hard work of the campus members on the project. 

Chancellor Duffey noted the death of James Baldwin, author 
and professor at the Amherst campus. A memorial service will 
be held on December 16. Also, the bonds for the first 
buildings constructed by the UMass Building Authorit y in 1933 
had been paid off. There was a surplus of $100,000, this money 
would be used for scholarships for alumnae/i who wished to 
further their education. He noted the Annual Fund was faring 
very well. 

Chancellor Corrigan said that Robert Dentler, Professor of 
Sociology and Director of the M.A. Program in Applied Sociology 
at the Boston campus, had been appointed Interim Director of 
the Institute for Learning and Teaching. Dr. Dentler is a man 
of many accomplishments. 

Speaking of the establishment of the Frank Manning Chair in 
Gerontology, the Chancellor said there had been a ceremony at 
the State House to celebrate the establishment of the Chair. 
Many luminaries from various fields were in attendance. A 
search for an incumbent was underway. Searches were also being 
conducted for a Dean of the College of Public and Community 
Service and a Dean of Nursing. 

Chancellor Laster said that he had been engaged in an 

effort to find rationality in the many forces which impinged on 

the Medical Center. In this effort he had found an institution 

which had a strong base which had many strong areas and 



-2- 



other elements which needed further development. He said he 
had a feeling that the Center, based upon the enthusiasm and 
dedication of the staff, had a bright future. 

The next item on the agenda was the report of the Committee 
on Academic and Student Affairs. Trustee Zervas, Chair, said 
the first of four action items the Committee dealt with was the 
Appointment of John w. Farrington. Dr. Farrington was the 
Director of the Coastal Research Center and Senior Scientist at 
the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. After discussion, it 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To concur with the President in the appointment of 
John W. Farrington as Michael Walsh Professor of 
Environmental Sciences with tenure at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston. (Doc. 
T87-095) 

The next item was Enrollment Caps --UM/Amherst . Trustee 
Zervas said that the discussion on this issue had been 
extensive and thoughtful and after review on the campus the 
matter had been brought to the Trustees. The issue had been 
discussed at two Committee meetings. After discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To revoke the present cap on enrollment of 

out-of-state undergraduates at the Amherst campus, 
now set at 15%, and to substitute therefore a cap 
which may vary from 10% to 25%, under the 
conditions set forth in Doc. T87-096; with the 
understanding and commitment from the campus that 
this change will not alter the primary mission of 
the University as a land grant university serving 
the needs of the citizens of the Commonwealth, nor 
will it deny access to qualified Massachusetts 
residents. The Admissions Office will report to 
the Trustees each Fall on the percentage of 
freshman and the percentage of total undergraduates 
who are from out-of-state. 

and, 

VOTED : That the present cap of 14% of the Amherst campus 
student body being graduate students be abolished. 
The number of graduate students should depend upon 
the needs of potential students and the 
appropriateness of the size of the graduate body in 
each field, and should be strictly limited by the 
resources available. Changes in the size of the 
graduate body will be reported back to the Trustees 
each Fall. 

The next item was Department of Journalism --UM/Amherst . 
After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

-3-

Committee had also discussed Institutional Program Reviews, 
Tenure Statistics and Recent Program Proposals. 

Chair Knowles, in the absence of Trustee Bowman, then gave 
the report of the Committee on University Relations and 
Development. At its November 17 meeting, the Committee had 
recommended the allocation of $275,000 to relations and 
development efforts of the three campuses, after which the 
Committee heard reports from each of the three campuses. 

At the meeting it was agreed to launch a major campaign in

(The vote was approved with the understanding that the

Chair Knowles suggested that the next item Audit Reports be

Chair Knowles said that the Executive Committee met just 
prior to the Board meeting and dealt with two action items and 
discussed a third. 

The first item was Hospital Management Board Minutes . It 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the July 22 and the 
September 22, 1987 meetings of the Hospital 
Management Board with the following exception of 
the September 22, meeting: Item 3 -- Multi-year 
contracts. (Doc. T87-094) 

-6- 



The discussion item was Multi-Year Contracts . President 
Knapp said the discussion was in two parts -- one dealt with a 
report by the Chancellor on such contracts at the Hospital. 
The second a review of multi-year contracts of upper level 
administrators throughout the University. 

Chair Knowles said the Committee had also discussed at 
length Executive Compensation . Trustee Oakes then commented 
that this action places the President's salary below the 
midpoint of the salary range established by the Board of 
Regents through a study done by Hay Associates. Further, the 
President has been in his job for nine years and this was what 
the Board considered when it took its previous action. The 
same kind of logic, the same rationale was used in establishing 
the salary of the Chancellor at Amherst. 

He added that although the initial deliberations were not 
in public, and there would have been no problem with the 
deliberations in public, it was something he was proud of. It 
was unfortunate the way it has come out in the press, but it 
should be understood that it was a matter of establishing a 
fair salary for the job given the nature of the competitive 
environment. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To rescind effective December 5, 1987, the October 
27, 1987 votes of the Board of Trustees concerning 
the salaries of the President of the University of 
Massachusetts and the Chancellor of the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst. 

And further, 

VOTED : Pursuant to the authorization vested in the Board 
of Trustees, M.G.L. Chapter 15A, Section 5(v) and 
Chapter 75, Section 14, the Board of Trustees 
hereby establishes the salary of the President of 
the University of Massachusetts at $111,120 
effective November 30, 1986. 

And further, 

VOTED : Pursuant to the authorization vested in the Board 
of Trustees M.G.L. Chapter 15A, Section 5(v) and 
Chapter 75, Section 14 the Board of Trustees hereby 
establishes the salary of the Chancellor of the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst at $109,000 
effective March 8, 1987. 

Trustee Zervas then gave the report of the Nominating 
Committee. After a brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 



-7- 



VOTED ; To confirm and approve the officers and committees 
of the Board set forth in Doc. T87-111, all to 
serve until the next annual meeting of the Board. 

Chair Knowles then called for a motion to enter executive

aid in these violations of International 
Law and thus Federal Law, cannot be 
considered "legitimate public business"; 
and,

the CIA, and therefore is itself an

by the Executive Committee to review the function of the 
Leqal Services Office. He indicated he had visited the

leqal services provided on other campuses. He questioned 
whether a reorqanization as proposed in the Leqal Services 
Office Commission report could achieve the desired result. 
He then made his conclusions and orooosed options . 

The first two ootions he suqqested should be considered 
over a lonq term. First, the University withdraw complete- 
ly from providinq any leqal services to students; second, 
the University could assist in establishinq a coooerative 
-- with the lawyers and suooort staff as an independent 
entity. 

As an interim step he recommended the 3oard adoot a 
third option to return to the oriqinal qoal of providinq

Trustee Knowles, Chair, called the meeting to order at 1:05 
p.m. The first item on the agenda was Hospital Management 
Board Minutes . 

Trustee Carlin was then asked to comment on the Hospital 
budget for this year and next. According to Trustee Carlin, 
FY88 looks good; FY89 presents a less optimistic picture for 
the hospital and steps are being taken to present a balanced 
budget. 

Chair Knowles indicated the Board's appreciation to Trustee 
Carlin for his attention to this matter. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the minutes of 
the July 22 and the September 22, 1987 meeting of 
the Hospital Management Board with the following 
exception of the September 22, meeting: Item 3 — 
Multi-Year Contracts. (Doc. T87-094) 

President Knapp then spoke to the matter of Multi-Year 
Contracts at the Hospital. He indicated that here was an 
understanding that there would be full executive involvement at 
the outset of awarding of any multiple year contract at the 
Hospital. This will provide the attention on these agreements 
which is necessary for internal management. 



He added that there is a policy for awarding multiple year 
contracts to professional employees, but there is a need to 
look at what levels of management should be awarded multiple 
year contracts. He noted the need for flexibility in this 
area. He summarized by saying that after a full review he 
would make recommendations. 

After a lengthy discussion, the Committee asked that more 
comparative data be provided when it's asked to revisit this 
matter. 

The last item was Executive Compensation . Chair reviewed a 
series of events that had taken place since the October 27th 
meeting. 

Trustee Oakes indicated that the competitive situation the 
University is in needs to be acknowledged if the University is 
going to attract the caliber of people needed to be a world 
class institution. Another concern related to the negative 
publicity surrounding this matter. 

There then ensued a discussion of the salary ranges 
established by the Board of Regents for the President and 
Chancellors. Of particular concern were the ranges for the 
Boston and Worcester campuses. It was noted that when it came 
to setting salaries in the case of the President's position, 
~the Regents proposed a salary less than the midpoint. However, 
the state and community college presidents were brought to the 
midpoint . 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board rescind effective

Ph.D. Program in Regional Planning at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst as 
described in Doc. T86-084. 



The Governance Document for the Graduate School of 
Biomedical Sciences at the University of Massachusetts was 
then discussed. The document is consistent with the 
Graduate School Biomedical Sciences proposal endorsed by 
the Board of Trustees in April and addresses the role of 
the Dean, the organization of the Graduate Faculty, the 
role of the Graduate Council and the ratification and 
amendment process. Vice President Smith noted that the 
By-laws would also be acted on by the Executive 
Committee. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Executive Committee 

recommend to the Board that they approve the 
Governance Document of the Graduate School of

Massachusetts Medical Center set forth in Doc. 
T86-085. 

The next item was the Establishment of the Analog 
Devices Professorship of Computer Engineering and the 
Appointment of Professor Premachandran Menon to it. The

senior "professorship to bring expertise in computer 
architecture and VLSI circuit design to the University and 
to establish a nationally recognized research program in 
one or both of the areas. The terms of the agreement

ation Lists at the University of Massachusetts

001A, subject to the completion of all

The Committee also discussed Guidelines for Planning 
and Review of New Academic Degree Programs . The 
Guidelines were developed by the Academic Affairs Council 
to facilitate the review by the Provosts of proposals from 
the campuses. 

_2- 



During the discussion, a point was raised about 
attempting to avoid duplication of current programs on 
other University campuses and thereby denying students 
this opportunity because they do not have access to the 
Amherst Campus due to family commitments and work. It was 
noted that the guidelines are not intended to eliminate 
duplication but to have those proposals accompanied by a 
strong justification for such duplication. 

Chancellor Corrigan also alerted the Committee that 
the Boston campus will request at the April meeting that 
two Professorships , originally approved by the Board in 
1979, be specifically named. These professorships will be 
used to solicit candidates nationally. The administration 
was requested to provide the Committee with a summary of 
what University Professorships exist and their status. 

The Committee then discussed at length the policies on 
Alcohol and Drug Abuse on the campuses. Ms. Rita 
Nethersole, Director of Student Affairs, gave a report on 
the policies specific to each campus - Worcester focuses 
on their physicians and access of medical professionals to 
pharmaceuticals as well as street and designer drugs, 
Boston focuses more on drunk-driving since their campus is 
a comuter campus and a large number of students are over 
the legal drinking age, and Amherst has the problem of 
students who are under the drinking age and who are 
drinking within residential units. 

Vice Chancellor Madson addressed the Committee about 
the subject of alcohol education program on campus, the 
results of the survey report and efforts to reduce alcohol 
consumption on campus. He pointed out that the statistics 
indicated that drunk driving and drug use was down. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 3:05 p.m.

Chancellor Corrigan said that the report deals with 
doctoral level work and the long-range plan update, which 
will be available this spring, will go into more detail 
about missions in general for undergraduate and master's 
programs. , 



Dr. Liem then distributed a revised version of the 
draft document and described its contents. The document 
emphazised that doctoral program planning on the Boston 
campus has been part of the thinking of the campus from 
the very beginning. It also articulates those principles 
seen as central to shaping doctoral development on the 
Boston campus and links that historically to an early 
document about doctoral planning -- the Patterson report. 
Basically those principles are the following: to carry on 
the land grant tradition by developing programs that are 
responsive to social and economic needs of the urban 
environment, to provide access to students who are highly 
qualified but not adequately served by existing programs, 
to provide the education necessary to equip citizens to 
move into jobs in key leadership positions within areas of 
the state economy where there is documented need and 
established real growth potential, and to be responsible 
to state manpower needs that are not currently being met 
by other doctoral programs. It also emphazises the need 
to link doctoral development to the public service mission 
of the institution through the commitment to basic applied 
research. Programs which have come before the Board to 
date include the Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences, the 
Ph.D. in Human Development and Clinical Psychology, the 
Ph.D. -in Computer Science and the Ph.D. in Gerontology 
which will be submitted in April. Three other initiatives 
in the development stage on campus are a Doctoral Program 
in Applied Public Policy Studies, a Doctorate in Education 
and potential programs in biological sciences and in 
English. 

Dr. Liem then addressed a question about the faculty's 
feeling about the movement toward doctoral programs and 
indicated that there was an extensive review process for 
new doctoral proposals that involves a substantial number 
of faculty. 

Provosts O'Brien and Kelley then addressed their 
concerns about the development of doctoral programs at the 
Boston campus. Both said they would not want the programs 
to be mirror images of their campuses and that a main 
concern was that the University should not be competing 
against each other . 

President Knapp said there were critical questions 
which need to be addressed in the Long Range Planning 
process - identifying the balance of graduate and 
undergraduate programs for each of the campuses and the 
combination of programs needed.

Chancellor Corrigan then solicited comments about the 
content of the document. Suggestions included that the 
campus provide specific programs for a ten year period, 
and that the charts be more precise. 

Then introduced into the discussion was the article in 
the newspaper about a report on teacher education programs 
which was subject of a recent Regents meeting and the 
subsequent moratorium by the Regents on doctoral 
programs. Vice President Smith indicated that much of 
what was in the article the University is familiar with 
and has begun to take action. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Board, the meeting adjourned at 3:15 p.m.

VOTED To recommend that the Board concur with the 
President in the appointments with tenure of 
the following individuals at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst: 

Andrew Rukhin, Professor of Mathematics and 

Statistics 

Samuel Weber, Professor of Comparative 

Literature 

David Rosenbaum, Associate Professor of 

Psychology (Doc. T87-017) 

The proposed item, Named Professorships , at the Boston 
campus was then discussed. Provost Liem indicated that in 
1979 the Board approved the establishment of Named 
Professors; one each in the humanities, social sciences, 
the natural sciences and in public services. The names 
that were recommended at that time were not accepted. 

She indicated that the campus was now interested in 
proposing names for these professorships and in this 
instance they were associating them with the doctoral 
development efforts underway on campus. The 
professorships would be used as an opportunity to try to 
attract to the campus, outstanding scholars who will lend 
their expertise and names to these graduate programs. 

In recommending specific names of individuals the 
campus tried identifying those names directly associated 
with the mission of the campus and individuals who are no 
longer living. The three names proposed were Michael P. 
Walsh, a biologist and former President of Boston College? 
Horace Mann, "father of American Public Education", and 
Dorothea Dix, a social reformer and humanitarian. 

It was recommended that since Horace Mann has been 
more readily associated with the public shool system more 
than with university level work, that this be referred 
back to the campus and that prior to the April Board 
meeting, the campus check with Boston College and Michael 
Walsh's heirs concerning the use of his name. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 

following Named Chairs at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston: 

Dorothea Dix Professorship 
Michael Walsh Professorship 

(Doc. T87-019)

Graduation Lists were then considered. At Amherst 
there were 13 candidates presented, at Boston there were a 
total of 1,331 candidates and 14 at Worcester for a total 
of 1,358. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
February, 1987 Graduation Lists at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, the 
December, 1986, May and September, 1987 
Graduation Lists at the University of 
Massachusetts at 3oston and the 1987 
Graduation Lists at the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester, subject to the 
completion of all requirements as certified by 
s the Recorder of the campus. ( Doc. T87-001A) 

The Committee then discussed at length the Proposal 
for a Ph.D. in Gerontology at the Boston campus. The 
proposed program is designed to address the demand for 
highly trained reseachers, policy analysts, and scientists 
who can contribute to policy development, research, and 
evaluation of the practice and service delivery to the 
elderly. 

The proposal has been reviewed by each segment of 
campus governmance, the Academic Affairs Council and has 
received strong support from a number of local and 
national reviewers. 




The two M.A. curricula will have practical objectives 
since the emphasis will be placed on the languages and 
linguistics skills that will enhance future work in 
translation, teaching, journalism, business and 
international trade. The curricula, however, will be 
flexible enough to prepare students for further graduate 
study in the traditional literary or philogical approaches 
should this option become desirable. 

The Report on Admissions and Finance was postponed 
until the next meeting. 

The meeting adjourned at 3:45 p.m.

The next item on the agenda was consideration of the 
September 1, 1987 Graduation List at the Amherst Campus. 
There were 332 undergraduate students presented. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board take the following 
action: 

To approve the September 1, 1987 Graduation 
List at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst contained in Doc. T87-Q01E, subject to 
the completion of all requirements as 
certified by the Recorder of the campus. 



Next the Committee heard a presentation from the Amherst campus 
concerning Graduate and Undergraduate Enrollment . Provost O'Brien 
spoke to the reports. 

The first report, Changing Demographics at the Undergraduate 
Level, focused on the changes in the pool of potential applicants 
to the campus. The changes include a decline in the number of high 
school seniors ranging from 2.5 - 3.1 percent; a shift in the age 
and racial/ethnic mix of the population with an increase in the 
proportion of Black, Hispanic and Asian populations; and a change 
in the financial background of applicants with an influx of higher 
income students from the private college pool and an increase in 
students from families earning less than $20,000. 

The report detailed a set of responses if these changes occur. 
The committee then discussed the proposed recommendation to estab- 
lish a flexible out-of-state enrollment cap if demographics sud- 
denly change. 

The second report, The Graduate Character of the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst detailed the demands for an increased 
presence for graduate studies on the campus. It further proposed 
removal of the 14% cap on graduate enrollment. 

Trustee Knowles suggested that these reports become cart of the 
agenda for the Trustees retreat since they are so closely tied to 
long-range planning issues and require discussion by the full 
Board. It was asked that the campus prepare for the Trustees a 
position paper and update the data included in the reports. 

The Committee then heard from Kevin Crain concerning the recent- 
ly published Directory of University Resources for Government, Busi- 
ness and Industry which highlights what the University is doing in 
the area of public service programs. 



Page 4 

Added to the agenda was discussion of the recent legislation 
concerning an increase in mandated tuition for Non-resident Alien 
Undergraduate Students . Before the Committee commenced discussion 
it was noted that the Governor had signed an amendment that would 
provide financial aid for some needy foreign students. Dr. Barbara 
Burn from the International Program at Amherst spoke to this item. 

She indicated that the presence of foreign undergraduate 
students at the University contributes siqnif icantly to the educa- 
tion of students about other countries and cultures. Further, the 
presence of foreign undergraduate students does not deny admission 
of Massachusetts residents to the University, and the cost of educa- 
ting foreign students is relatively modest due to the small foreign 
student population. Since few undergraduate foreign students re- 
ceive home government support and can afford to pay higher tuition, 
differential tuition will discourage the enrollment of foreign 
undergraduates in the Commonwealth. 

President Knapp said he hoped to get new legislation filed to 
repeal this legislation. 

There being no further business to come before the Committee, 
the meeting adjourned at 3:40 p.m.

Friday, November 13, 1987; 2:00 p.m.

UMass/Boston: Chancellor Corriqan; Dean Safwat. 

UMass/Worcester : Actinq Chancellor Hanshaw; Provost Kellv. 

Chairperson Zervas called the meetinq to order at 2:05 
p.m. The first item on the aqenda was Appointment of John W. 
Farrington . Professor Farrinqton was the Director of Coastal 
Research Center and Senior Scientist at the Woodshole 
Oceanoqraphic Institution, and is an internationally renowned 
marine, orqanic chemist. The appointment will enable the 
Environmental Sciences Proqram to take a major step forward in 
its development. 

After discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board take the followinq 
action: 

To concur with the President in the 
appointment of John W. Farrinqton as Michael 
Walsh Professor of Environmental Sciences with 
tenure at the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston. (Doc. T87-095) 

The next item, Student Enrollment Caps — UMass/Amherst. In 
the course of the discussion Provost O'Brien noted that at the 
present time the matter of enrollment caps was somewhat moot. 
Because of lack of resources most proqrams were filled to 
capacity thus cappinq enrollments. However, there was a 
polymer science buildinq in the offinq and this would remove 



( 



-2- 



the cap in that area and also the need for additional 
resources, including space obtained in other disciplines. 
Chairperson zervas asked if the Reqents would intervene in the 
matter of enrollment caps. The Provost said the Reqents had 
expressed approval of the cap for qraduate students and wanted 
to discuss the matter of an underqraduate cap if there should 
be a fallinq off of the number of in-state underqraduates . 

Trustee Winqle suqqested that the proposed vote be amended 
to include lanquaqe which would insure that the maximum 
out-of-state cap would be imposed onlv after there had been an 
appreciable decline in in-state enrollment. This matter was 
discussed thorouqhlv as were other proposed amendments. At the 
end of the discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board take the followinq 
action: 

To revoke the present cap on enrollment of 
out-of-state underqraduates, now set at 15%, 
and to substitute therefore a cap which may 
vary from 10% to 25%, under the conditions set 
forth in Doc. T87-096, with the understandinq 
and commitment from the campus that this 
chanqe will not alter the primary mission of 
the University as a land qrant university 
servinq the needs of the citizens of the 
Commonwealth, nor will it deny access to 
qualified Massachusetts residents. The 
Admissions Office will report to the Trustees 
each Fall on the percentaqe of freshman and 
the percentaqe of total underqraduates who are 
from out-of-state 

and, 

VOTED : That the present cap of 14% of the Amherst 

campus student body beinq qraduate students be 
abolished. The number of qraduate students 
should depend upon the needs of potential 
students and the appropriateness of the size 
of the qraduate body in each field, and should 
be strictly limited by the resources avail- 
able. Chanqes in the size of the qraduate 
body will be reported back to the Trustees 
each Fall. 

The next item was Graduation Lists . Without discussion it 
was moved, seconded and

The next item, Department of Journalism--UMass/Amherst , was 
listed on the agenda as an item for discussion. Vice President 
Smith noted that the Committee miqht be asked to act on the 
item. In essence, the Committee would be asked to modify a 
proqram, Journalistic Studies, that is already in place. 
Provost O'Brien noted that resources for the proposed depart- 
ment were somewhat scanty and this miqht delay accreditation. 
He then introduced Professor Boyland, Director of the proqram. 

On the matter of accreditation, Professor Boyland said, the 
Senate Proqram and Budqet Council had been overly friendly and 
had urqed consideration of additional resources. Once such 
resources were available, accreditation would be souqht. After 
further discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board take the followinq 
action: 

To approve the establishment of a Department 
of journalism at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Amherst and the conversion of the 
current Journalistic Studies manor to a maior 
in Journalism. (Doc. T87-097) 

The next item was Institutional Program Reviews — UMass/ 
Boston and Amherst. Vice President Smith reminded the 
Committee that at the last meetinq it had been aqreed that 
these reviews would be dealt with in two staqes. If, durinq 
the first staqe, there were specific questions for which 
answers were unavailable arranqements would be made to have 
those with the answers at the next meetinq of the Committee. 

Chairperson zervas suqqested that this be dealt with on a 
proqram by proqram basis. She noted that there appeared to be 
some administrative problems between the Art and Art History 
Departments at Amherst. Provost O'Brien said that the Art 
History Department ran much as the majority of other academic 
departments did. The Art Department, consistinq as it did of 
artists, ran in a much different fashion and there are 
differences about the allocation of resources, for example. 
Also, in several departments, e.q., Chemistry, tended towards 
fragmentation. in response to a question from the Chair he 



'•

said many of the problems in departments could be addressed if 
additional funds were available. Student/faculty ratios were 
then discussed, as was the demand for certain classes. 

The Committee then discussed the reviews of the Boston 
campus. Trustee Lopes noted that all of the reviews seemed to 
be upbeat except for that of the Art Deoartment. That review 
qave the impression that the review team iust wanted to fill 
out the form. Also, many of the recommendations were dependent 
upon the capital outlay appropriation. In response to her 
question Chancellor Corriqan said that the development of the 
fine arts at the Harbor campus had a lonq history. The 
oriqinal plan of the campus made no provisions for studios or a 
qallery. Over the years artists had been hired but there had 
not been resources to develop a broad proqram. Chairperson 
Zervas asked for information about the proposed qallery. The 
Chancellor said there was space on the first floor of the 
Downtown Center which had been used on and off as a student 
run, community-oriented art qallery. Also, the buildinq 
contained a theatre which could be converted into a qallery. 

The Trustees then discussed Tenure Statistics and Recent 
Proqram Proposals . 

There was no further business to come before the Committee 
and the meetinq was adjourned at 4:00 p.m.

Ms. Giacomarra, Assistant Dean for Fiscal Services 

Chairman Oakes convened the meeting at 2:00 p.m. and 
asked Ron MacArthur to update the Committee on his 
activities with Internal Auditing. 

President Knapp then gave an overview of the Student 
Fees and Fee Increases . Basically, the increases were 
related to changes in personnel costs due to collective 
bargaining. At Amherst, the total fee increase was 
$234.50. By category this represents a $10 increase in 
the Athletic fee, $4 in the Fine Arts Center fee, $16.50 
in the undergraduate Student Activities Fee, $22 in the 
Student Health fee, $25 in the Supplemental Health 
Benefit, $103 for room charges and $79 for Board. A 
discussion ensued about the student activities budget . 
Counsel Searson raised some concerns about the budget and 
a number of statements included therein. Chairman Oakes 
asked that the ambiguity in that budget be clarified 
before it goes to the full Board. It was further noted 
that approval of the fees and fee structure does not imply 
the endorsement of the individual budgets by the 
Trustees. It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

fee and fee increases at the Amherst campus 
as presented at this meeting. 

At Boston, the total proposed fee increase was $44. 
The Athletic fee was recommended to be increased by $20, 
the Student Health Services fee by $4 and a $20 increase 
in the one-time only Recreation Fee which is assessed 
first semester. Chancellor Corrigan justified the 
proposed increases and presented comparison figures on the 
Athletic fee which showed that the proposed fee remained 
the lowest among public higher education institutions. 
Trustee Saba, in opposing the proposed fee increases, 
presented the recommendation of the Ad Hoc Committee of 
the Student Senate. With regard to the Health Services 
fee she said services have not been increased; a number of 
faculty and staff use Health Services without paying for 
the services and the increase is primarily due to a rise 
in personnel costs. With regard to the Athletic fee, the 
Ad Hoc Committee recommended it be increased by no more 
than $5 for FY88 provided the Community membership be 
increased by the same amount. It was suggested that the 
increases be fairly distributed between students and 
community members . 

In response to these concerns, Chancellor Corrigan 
reviewed the history and origin of the Athletic Center and 
the related commitments made with regard to opening the 
facilities to the public. Mr. David Stockton, Director of 
Health Services then addressed the specific concern about 
occasions which health services are available to faculty 
and staff. Roughly 15% are non-students, but that 
represents 5% of the encounters and most of those are for 
required TB tests for new employees. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

Student Health Services Fee at the Boston 
campus as presented to this meeting. 

Trustee Saba is recorded as opposed to the motion. 

The motion to approve the Athletic and Recreation fee 
was then moved, and seconded. The vote was 2:2:1. 

At Worcester, the proposed increase was $10 in the 
one-time only Commencement fee for seniors. This fee 
covers the costs and expenses of graduation. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the fees 
and fee increases at the Worcester campus as 
presented to this meeting.

Chancellor Dalen then presented the proposal to 
acquire the Urology Practice of Dr. Michael Seelig for 
$100,000. Should this proposal be approved by the Board 
of Trustees, the next step would require approval from the 
Division of Capital Planning and Operations to lease 1,000 
square fee of space. After discussion about patient 
referral and the purchase price, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board authorize the 
Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester to acquire the 
Southbridge Urology Practice of Dr. 
Michael Seelig for $100,000; further, to 
authorize the Chancellor, subject to the 
concurrence of the Board of Regents and 
the Division of Capital Planning and 
Operations, to lease 1000 square feet of 
space, more or less, in the professional 
office building at Harrington Memorial 
Hospital at a yearly costs of $6,200. 
(Doc. T87-011) 

Chancellor Dalen then explained the request that the 
Trust Fund position title Hospital Assistant be created. 
This position title will be used for positions such as EEG 
Technician for which there is not an appropriate state 
title. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board create the 

title Hospital Assistant at the University 
of Massachusetts Medical Center under the 
conditions set forth in Doc. T87-013. 

The next matter was approval for a Student Deposit of 
$100 to be required of all accepted applicants for 
admission to the Medical School. This deposit would hold 
a place in the incoming class. For a student who 
withdraws late after being accepted, the money will be 
used for Student Scholarships,, Deposits at other medical 
schools range between $50 and $300. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve a 

mandatory student deposit of $100 at the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School 
to be paid by all accepted applicants for 
admission to hold a place in the incoming 
class. (Doc. T87-014) 

The next matter was to authorize the Chancellor or 
Dean of the Medical School to enter into Learning 
Contracts with students so long as such contracts are 
mandated by the Legislature. The current language 
authorizes the Chancellor /Dean and this request is 
consistent with the organization structure at the Medical 
School. It was moved, seconcLejd and 

-3- 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the 
Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts Medical Center or the Dean 
of the Medical School to enter into 
Learning Contracts with students for so 
long as such contracts are mandated by the 
Legislature. (Doc. T82-100, Addendum II) 

The Committee then heard a presentation by the 
Treasurer on the 1986 Annual Investment Report which 
included income earned on trust funds, as well as pooled 
and non-pooled endowment funds. The total income from all 
sources during FY86 totalled $6,757,647. 

President Knapp then reported on the Governor 1 s 
Recommendation for the FY88 Budget which is essentially a 
level funded budget and the Board of Regents' recommen- 
dation for a 7 year Capital Plan for Massachusetts Public 
Higher Education, Foundations for Excellence . 

At the Amherst campus the Capital Plan calls for $186 
million over an eight year period and almost $40 million 
of that in FY87. There is new construction provided for 
polymer science and engineering research and construction 
of a new classroom which will free up space in other 
buildings which can be converted for research 
laboratories. There is also $50 million deferred 
maintenance money spread over the period. 

At Boston, a total of $36 million is provided over 
eight years, almost $12 million of which is in the first 
year. There are funds for the completion of a new master 
plan which will address the intense pressure on existing 
facilities associated with the developing mission of that 
campus. There is also money recommended for repairs and 
renovations at the Harbor campus and Stuart Street as well 
as for studies for a Student Center Building and for 
accommodating Public Service Institutes. 

The Worcester campus has the smallest amount of money 
over the eight year period - $13 million with the basic 
emphasis on funding deferred maintenance. There is a 
major concern about the absence of a master plan for the 
campus and there is a commitment from the Board of Regents 
and the Division of Capital Planning and Operations that 
once that plan is completed, they will be willing to 
entertain an amendment to the Capital Budget Plan for the 
Worcester campus. 

Chairman Oakes then called for a motion to enter 
Executive Session to discuss Litigation and Administrative 
Compensation . It was moved, seconded and 
on roll call

President Knapp gave an overview of the Mid Year 
Review of the Budget and reviewed the proposed transfers among 
subsidiary accounts. At Amherst, the transfers represented 3% 
of the total state appropriation. At Boston, there were no 
proposed transfers at Mid Year; however, since that time a 
request has been made to transfer £477,000 out of the 01 and 02 
salary accounts and distribute it into various subsidiaries. 
At Worcester, only three transfers amonq State funds were 
proposed, and there were none in the President's Office.

Trustee Knowles, Chair, convened the meetinq at 
2 : 10 p.m. 

Vice President Lenhardt presented the University 3 93 8 
Operating Budqet and issues which have uni ver sitv-wide 
implications. The total expenditures the university 
anticipates is &649 million which is broken down into the 
f ol lowinq: 

CLASSIFICATION OF EXPENDITURES 

instruction, Research, Public Service, 
Academic Support, Student Services, 
Financial Aid, institutional Support, 
Plant Operation & Maintenance, Auxi- 
liary Enterprises, and Hospital Opera- 
t ions . 

He noted that for this year, there was very little new 



program money and also that certain state specials have 
been folded into the state budget which previously were 
separate appropriations to the campuses. 

He illustrated that the growth in federal grant and 
trust fund monies is keeping pace with inflationary 
pressures whereas state funding is not. Supplies and 
equipment capacity have remained level since 1986. More 
specifically, funds from the State for utilities (08) and 
consultants (03), most of which are students and faculty 
instructors, were cut substantially in FY88. As a result 
of these cuts and the increases and surcharges the 
Amherst, Boston, and Worcester campuses expect deficien- 
cies. 




The Committee then heard campus presentations on the 
FY88 operating budgets. The underlying concern at each 
campus was level funding for operating expenses and the 
need for additional space. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the FY88 
Operating Budget set forth in Doc. T88-077. 

Vice President Lenhardt then introduced the 1988 Audit 
Plan Si Draft Audit Protocols . The revised audit protocols 
reflect a process and procedure for the campus to comment 
twice: once on the facts and then on conclusions. It also 
reiterates the need to keep the information confidential 
until it has been approved by the Trustees. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 1988 
Audit Plan; further to approve the revised 
Audit Protocols contained in Doc. T87-039 
and to rescind the Audit Protocols contained 
in Doc. T80-090 approved by the Board on 
April 2, 1980. 

The next item which was for discussion was the Trust 
Fund Interest Annual Report . The report details all trust 
fund interest expenses for 1987. 

Vice President Lenhardt indicated that a new set of 
Trust Fund Interest policies and procedures which explicit 



ly states goals and directions are being reviewed and will 
be presented to the Committee in November. 

The next item on the agenda was a request for approval 
for a Long Term (99 Year) Lease of approximately two acres 
of University land to the Town of Amherst. The land would 
be used for the sole purpose of constructing and operating 
an animal pound /shelter , with the property to revert to 
the University should it not be used for this purpose. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachu- 
setts at Amherst, subject to review by the 
President's Office and the concurrence of 
the Division of Capital Planning and Opera- 
tions and the Board of Regents, to lease for 
a period of 99 years two acres of land which 
abuts Rte. 116 and the Amherst Waste Water 
Treatment Plant to the Town of Amherst for 
the sole purpose of constructing an animal 
pound /shelter under the terms and conditions 
set forth in Doc. T87-090. 

Vice Cnancellor Baxter spoke to the Mass Fitness Pro - 
gram at the Boston campus. After discussions with the Pre^ 
sident's Office staff it was agreed there was no need to 
establish an additional trust fund for this purpose and it 
will be accommodated through the Continuing Education Pro- 
gram as an optional program within the existing Exercise 
Science/Sports Medicine Lab. He further stated that in 
answer to questions raised there will be no interference 
of the student use of the Athletic Facility. 

The next item was approval of a Personnel Action for 
Dr. Harriet Robinson who will be directing the Pathology 
Department's efforts in AIDS research at the Worcester 
campus . 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve an over- 
scale salary for Dr. Harriet Robinson, Pro- 
fessor of Pathology, $75,000. (Doc. T87-092) 

Chairman Knowles then added to the agenda a request to 
allocate funds from the Trustee Reserve for the purposes 
of implementing some of the recommendations of the Ad Hoc 
Committee on Advertising. That Committee, over the last 
ten months, has been exploring ways to increase the visi- 
bility of the University with its key constituent groups. 



It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the 

President to expend up to $275,000 of Trustee 
Reserve in FY88 for purposes of implementing 
the Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Adver- 
tising. (Doc. T87-093) 

He commended Trustee Bowman for his efforts in tnis 
regard and said the expenditure of these funds in this 
fashion will go a long way to reach University consti- 
tuents .

Committee the meeting adjourned at 3:35 p.m.

Chairman Bowman convened the meeting at 12:30 p.m. 

He outlined what he envisioned for the Committee for 
the coming year - part of that being the creation of an Ad 
Hoc Committee on Advertising to explore the specific issue 
of advertising. He announced that the first meeting of 
that Committee would be held on January 28th at the Boston 
campus and and would try to deal with the issues 
surrounding advertising as a tool of communication 
strategy for the University. The composition of the

gave an overview of where the campus is currently, what 
the communication plan will be able to do and Mr. Langley 
described the process already begun to produce the 
communication plan for the campus. 

One of the issues raised, during the course of the 
discussion that followed, was which target audiences are 
best reached with campus specific campaigns and which are 
best reached through University-wide campaigns. The 
campuses were asked to provide a comprehensive list of 
target audiences. 

The Committee then discussed its concern about the 
physical appearance of the campuses and the negative 
impact it portrays on public relations and development. 
Chairman Bowman indicated he would write a letter to each 
of the Chancellors describing the Committee's concern 
around this issue as it relates to University Relations 
and D-evelopment . 

Chairman Bowman then summarized the issues which need 
to be addressed by the Committee at the next meeting: 

To look at the list of target audiences and determine 
which should be pursued by specific campus efforts and 
which should be university-wide and to determine whether 
the research already completed at Amherst and Worcester is 
sufficient and whether additional research needs to be 
done at Boston and at Amherst with different 
constituencies. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 1:45 p.m.

Chairman Bowman convened the meeting at 12; 20 p.m. 

Dan McCann, Administrator for Marketing and Planning 
at the Medical Center gave an overview of the process 
involved in putting together a strategic marketing plan at 
the Medical Center. Components which went into 
development of the plan included an understanding of the 
market share, attitudes, competitive strengths and 
weaknesses, profitability and severity of patient 
i llnesses. 



Trustee Bowman raised concerns about the need to have 
the data separated by components—ambulatory , in-patient 
primary and tertiary--in order to determine profit or 
loss, what attitudes are specifically geared to that 
segment, and what the competitive environment is for each 
segment. It was also suggested that the Hospital 
specifically advertise for different segments — cardiac 
surgery, orthopedic where other community hospitals cannot 
compete. 

President Knapp described his recent series of 
editorial conferences and their results. He has visited 
the Boston Globe and Channel 5 which have resulted in 
editorials on Capital Outlay and tuition retention. He 
also announced he has scheduled conferences in Springfield 
and Northampton. Reactions so far include a general 
increase in the level of knowledge about the University. 

Chairman Bowman then reported on the recent meetinigs 
of the Ad Hoc Committee on Advertising. He reiterated the 
goal of the Committee is to look at both the communication 
strategy of the University and each of its campuses and 
then deal with the development issue. At the first 
meeting, the the constituencies were defined and debate 
began on the role of advertising for each of the 
constituencies. The question was raised whether 
advertising or a communications strategy based primarily 
on advertising was an appropriate way to proceed given the 
limited funds 

He then distributed a draft of communications 
expenditures identifying how the funds were being spent 
against each of the constituencies and how the dollars 
break out between advertising, public relations, 
literature, etc. For the University, $1.7 million is 
being spent on communications. 

The Committee concluded from this that more 
advertising outside of the student area needed to be done. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 1:35 p.m.

Chairman Bowman convened the meeting at 12:10 p.m. 

Mr. Bowman gave a synopsis of the four meetings of the 
Ad Hoc Committee on Advertising . He noted that the focus 
of the group had changed over time resulting in a goal of 
defining the best communications plan, including but not 
limited to advertising. Throughout the course of the ad 
hoc meetings, Committee members expressed concern that 
there was very little sense of the University as a whole. 
The Committee concluded that a major advertising or public 
relations campaign was premature in light of this lack of 
cohes iveness. 



The ad hoc Committee concluded that steps needed to be 
taken in order for the university community to feel and 
look like one university. Chairman Bowman broadly outlined 
the findings of a report that will be presented to the 
September 15th Committee on University Relations and 
Development. Among the recommendations are efforts to 
increase the amount of intercampus visits between faculty 
as well as staff and to sensitize the organizers of 
university special events to invite faculty from the other 
campuses. 

Chairman Bowman stressed the need to have a common 
look across all campuses and the President's Office. He 
said letterhead, business cards, logos and campus signs 
are ways to create a sense of identity. Special events 
such as a CEO series featuring a major corporate speaker 
would be another way in which the university could benefit 
from a partnership with the business community. 

The Ad Hoc Committee concluded that a regular column 
in the Campus Chronicle would allow for an exchange of 
information between the three campuses and the President's 
Office. Chairman Bowman noted there was little contact 
between the campuses and suggested that a communications 
demonstration project might help to link the three 
campuses. Utilizing Macintosh computers, the project 
would allow for a better communications link between 
university relations and development offices on all 
campuses. 

President Knapp addressed preparation plans currently 
underway for the University's lc2_5th anniversary 
celebration. He suggested the event may be a way in which 
to tie together some of the report's recommendations. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 12:55 p.m. f

Mr. Bowman indicated that the agenda for the meeting 
was to focus on the findings and recommendations of the Ad 
Hoc Committee on Advertising and that the Amherst campus 
sign proposal would be taken up as part of the Ad Hoc 
Committee report. 

Chairman Bowman then gave some background about the Ad 
Hoc Committee and its intended objective which originally 
was to look at the advertising issue and make a recommenda 



- 



tion to the University Relations and Development Committee 
about an adverti sinq campaiqn. He noted that the focus of 
the intent chanqed, and the Ad Hoc Committee looked at how 
it spent money in each area of its communication's vehicles 
and, then after receivinq that information, felt that 
before launching a major campaiqn that each campus needed 
to feel and look like one university. 

The Committee then discussed the specific recommenda- 
tions from the Committee and the estimated fundinq pro- 
posed: 

RECOMMENDATION ESTIMATED FUNDING 

1. Create a column in the Campus Chronicle that $ -0- 
reports on the activities of the other two 

campuses (the Campus Chronicle was chosen 
since it has wide distribution on all three 
campuses). This will increase the feelinq 
of unity across the campuses, and will pro- 
mote cross-campus visits and communication. 

2. Equip the UR&D offices on the three campuses $ 45 
and the President's Office with desktop pub- 

1 ishinq computers, laser printers, and 
modems. These computers will help the 
Offices communicate with each other, send 
documents electronically, and serve as 
campus demonstration projects for inter- 
campus communication. The requested amount 
also includes $5,000 for traininq at the 
four sites . 

3. Create an Express Bus service between fcl20/yr 
Amherst and Boston. 

After discussion, it was suqqested that this 
item required further study. 

4. Recoqnizinq that campus appearance is a $ 10 
major factor in both overall campus morale 

and fund-raisinq, hire an "appearance" 
consultant who will compile landscapinq and 
other appearance studies that now exist on 
the campuses and make specific recommenda- 
tions for improvinq the look of each campus 
and the 250 Stuart St. buildinq. 



RECOMMENDATION 



ESTIMATED FUNDING 
($000) 



5. Implement the recommendations for im- 
proved campus appearance. 

It was sugqested that an Intra-University 
Committee of retired and current personnel 
from the Campus Landscapinq Programs be 
established to report back on proposed 
plans. Requests for funding these items 
should be part of the maintenance budget. 

6. Use the occasion of the 125th Anniversary 
of the University to create events for the 
entire University community, to promote 
both the feeling of oneness across the 
campuses, and the amount of faculty and 
administrative travel between the campuses. 

7. Use the occasion of the 125th Anniversary 
of the University with its special logo 

to create a common look on all stationery, 
business cards, publications, and reports 
for the President's Office, the Chancel- 
lors' Offices, and the three ur&d offices. 
This logo will be in use throughout 1983. 

During 1988, create a logo/look for 1989 
and beyond that will be used by all 
campuses . 

Joyce Kacoyanis from the President's Office 
reported on the events planned in connection with 
the University-wide 125th Anniversarv. It was 
suggested that the Task Force look into commission- 
ing an artist to do a commemorative piece. 

8. Fund a study that will examine the signage 
issue at each campus, working towards a 
common look across all three campuses and 
the downtown office. The study will build 
on what already exists at the Boston Campus 

Put the signs up. 

9. Hold an annual retreat for the key staff of 
the four UR&D offices, to share ideas on 
communications and development. Invite 
alumni experts in advertising and PR to 
provide their insights. 



$200/yr 



I 35 



$15 



$ 40 



$50 



$250 
$ 4/yr 



10. Within each UR&D office, examine current $ -0- 
spendinq patterns and reallocate funds to 

increase the communication with six key 
groups : 

a ) Donors 

b) CEO's 

c) advanced placement high school students 

d) minority high school students 

e) high school honor teachers 

f) media 

Chairman Knowles spoke about his recent visits 
to high schools and encouraged the campuses to 
target communication with high school honor 
teachers . 

11. The Amherst UR&D Office now uses a media $ 15/yr 
brokerage service to identify specific 

newspapers, magazines, and TV shows that 
want information on a given subject. 
Tie in the Boston, Worcester, and Downtown 
campus with this service, so all four 
locations can benefit from the information. 

12. Finally, use the 125th Anniversary to gain $ 10 
some experience in advertising by approach- 
ing companies now associated with each of 

the three campuses to sponsor a series of 
"congratulatory ads" that would run in 
Boston, Worcester, and Springfield papers. 
Such ads would have a common look, with the 
125th logo and a tag line used in each ad. 
The ad would promote the company (since 
they're going to pay for it), and discuss 
how the University and company are working 
together. Ideally, these ads would run once 
per week from February through the end of 
the year (40 ads in three papers, or 120 
total ads). The companies would pay for 
the layout and the newspaper space. 

There was no further business to come before the Committee 
and the meeting was adjourned at 12:45 p.m.

The Committee heard reports from Rawle Garner, 
Director of Affirmative Action from Worcester and Jocelind 
Gant, Director of Affirmative Action from Boston, on 
recent Affirmative Action activities both locally and 
nationally. 

Chairman Knowles then reported that he had recently 
met with PAUMA at the Amherst campus and that at that 
meeting the Sub-Committee on Minorities resigned because 
of the lack of concern over minority issues on campus and 
in particular lack of action on the Hurst recommenda- 
tions. He indicated that there was a need for affirmative 
steps to be taken on campus. 

As part of the discussion that followed, it was 
recommended, and the Committee concurred, that the 
Chairman, the President, the Chancellor and the 
appropriate administrators at each campus should meet with 
the Deans and Associate Deans to outline the Board and 
University's commitment to affirmative action and goals 
and plans established for faculty and student recruiting. 



The Affirmative Action Plan for the President's Office 
was then considered. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board adopt and approve 
the Affirmative Action Plan of the University 
of Massachusetts Office of the President which 
is contained in Doc. T87-024.

issues as maternity leave, child care, and sexual 
harassment . 

The next item for action by the Board was

sistently reflect the intent of the Board 
for a non-sexist University environment. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee the meeting adjourned at 3:10 p.m.

Friday, November 13, 1987; 12:00 p.m.

Trustee Huquenin, Chair, convened the meetinq at 12:30 p.m. 

President Knapp informed the Committee that the 
Chancellor's Search Committee at Boston as constituted has 15 
members includinq 3 minority members and 5 women. 

He then shared with the Committee a draft of a letter 
related to the recent Globe publicity surroundinq professional 
public service awards. He noted that the nominatinq process 
was for members of the University faculty and staff who have 
demonstrated public service in their work. The pool of 
oriqinal nominees included relatively few women and minorities 
and a member of his staff solicited additional nominees to 
expand the pool in this respect. The Universitv-wide Public 
Service Council, which screened the nominees, had minorities 
and women on it. The final review panel consisted of indivi- 
duals outside the University and Muriel Snowden, a former 



-2- 

member of the Board of Trustees, was asked to serve. She felt 
her health precluded her from servinq on this Committee and 
sugqested Ellen Jackson who aqreed. Ellen became ill durinq 
the final staqes of the review. 

He indicated that both the Council Screeninq Committee and 
the award panel were concerned about the small number of women 
and minorities nominated and their absence in the final pool. 
He added that this speaks to a larqer problem - the late 
entrance of both women and minorities into professionally 
oriented public service activity in our universities. The 
fundamental concern is that the awardees and the individuals 
who approached the selection process with real dedication have 
been demeaned by the editorial. 

He then answered questions and heard suqqestions on how to 
proceed with the award proqram. ~ 

The committee then heard reports from the campus hiqhliqht- 
inq their Affirmative Action proqrams. 

It was noted that the Affirmative Action statistics on each 
campus and information on student enrollment and retention will 
be available at the next meetinq. If possible, the student 
data should include a sense of whether the population is 
indiqenous or national. 

Zaida Giraldo from the Amherst campus indicated her 
surprise about how few systems exist for keepinq track of 
statistics. As part of her report, she noted that at the 
Amherst campus there is a qreat deal of focus on affirma- 
tive action stemminq from a sense of responsibility over the 
October 27th incident. One of the most important develop- 
ments has come out of a conference desiqned and developed by 
the faculty. The purpose of the conference was to focus on 
faculty responsibilities for establishinq values in the campus. 

There was a brief discussion about the matter of salary 
anomaly and the variables necessary to determine whether 
differences in salary are appropriate based on somethinq other 
than sex. 

At Boston Jocelind Gant stated that with respect to the 
recruitment of ethnic minorities and women the campus continue?; 
to be very proud of its record. The data provided shows:

■■vS^paiversity-wide RFP to replace the University's tele&honfes to s

•inq needs throuqhout the campus^ "

In January 1987 the RFP was released after a University- 
wide committee developed the bid specifications. The Uni- 
versity received eiqht responses to the RFP. The Committee 
assessed the technical capacities of each of the vendors and 
are concludinq their evaluation with a review of the financial 
capacities of the vendors. 

All of the necessary agencies have been fully informed and 
are supportive. Mr. Lenhardt noted the time constraints the 
project is under because of system replacement, particularly at 
Amherst and Worcester, and hopes to identify a vendor in 
February and finalize contract neqotiations by late March or 
early April. 

Vice President Lenhardt concluded his report by notinq that 
it would be necessary to have another briefinq in January to 
discuss the financinq issues. 

He then introduced Marty Smith as Chairman of the Committee 

Each of the campus representatives were then introduced and 
spoke to the particular issues at their respective campus. 

Douq Abbott, Associate Vice Chancellor for Computinq and 
Information Services, from the Amherst campus, said the primary 
issue was the size of the system, the installation period 
required, and the fact that the main cable plant is full and 
needs to be replaced. 

Donald Gradv, Associate Vice Chancellor for Information 
Resources, from Worcester, said the two issues faced by the 
Medical Center are that the present telephone system is leased 
from AT&T and that the lease expires in June of 1988. The 
other issue is that the Medical Center is required to qet a 
DON approval, which requlates the maximum capital expenditures 
and the time constraints for installation. The two year 
approval expires January 1988. We are now in the process of 
applyinq for an extension of one year. 

Forrest Speck, Director, Auxiliary Services/Telecommuni- 
cations, from Boston stated that special issues involve 
connectinq 250 Stuart Street and the Harbor campus. 

The maior issue facinq all campuses is the financinq and 
how much of the capital will come from the Commonwealth. The 
actual cost and financinq will be brouqht to the Committee in 
mid-January.

Fred Chanowski, the consultant from Telecommunications 
Manaqement Corporation (TMC), then addressed the Committee 
about the attributes of a new system: 

1. Reliable telephone service 

2. Universally available telephone service 

3. Flexible voice communications to the end user 

4. Switched access to all computinq resources from the 
desktop 

5. Means to implement local area networks (LAN) on a 
departmental and campus-wide basis 

6. Means to distribute video cable facilities throuqhout 
each campus 

7. Capacity to easily, quickly and inexpensively install 
any kind of telecommunications and/or low voltaqe 
cable throuqhout each campus 

8. Stabilization of telecommunications costs 

9. Control over telecommunications facilities and costs 

10. Improved manaqement control 

11. Improved inter-campus voice and data communication 

12. To be positioned to take advantaqe of future techno- 
loqies and the developinq public exchanqe network. 

The Committee then asked specific questions about the 
system, security in terms of computinq, the extent of the video 
capabilities and its cost. 



The meetinq adjourned at 1:10 p.m.
